What is TAG?
A group of teens (age 12-18) who are interested in becoming more involved in their community and the library. Teens work with the Library Assistant to Youth Services (Aimee) and Children’s Librarian (Lisa B.) to decide exactly what their group would like to do.
TAG will hold monthly meetings to discuss possible programs – we will meet on the Second Monday of each month.
What do you get out of it?
As a member of TAG you get to have a say in the materials and programs for teens at the Peterborough Town Library. You will have the opportunity to be creative and expressive through art and imaginative activities and gain the personal satisfaction in serving your community and peers! TAG also looks great on job applications, college applications, and is a wonderful way to give back to your community – you may also be able to count TAG events as volunteer hours.
Things TAG members will do:
Give input on the YA collection at the library – recommend books, movies, and magazines
Influence how the library serves teens
Plan and host events for teens and kids
